of the fema assistance to get people moved or get them rentals. we're working to get more people in these areas, thing rs starting to get in there. but the two priorities are the power restoration to get power back on. we're going to refer back to the utilities. we got some of the equipment today. we're moving equipment from the west coast to the east coast. you can't drive it fast enough, so the departments are now flying utility trucks and crews to the west coast. some began landing this evening. that's going to continue as we bring in more resources to support utilities. >> when you see the pictures, we've seen this in several areas. when you look at the devastation and homes completely gone, homes just ripped off their foundations. is this what you expected or worse? >> no, this is why the evacuation orders were issued. with storm surge, which is what we get with these type of systems, people tend to think of this as what you see from hurricanes like we saw in mississippi and other storms. when this happens, that's the power of that water. it's not going to be like it's flood

get all the help that you need until you have rebuilt. we have over 2,000 fema personnel who are on the ground right now. their job now that we're moving out of the search and rescue phase, is to make sure that they're going out and talking to individual communities so people know exactly how they can get the help that they need. yesterday, i had a chance to speak to the ceos of the utilities from all across the country. a lot of states that were spared that were not hard hit or some states as far away as california, they have pledged to start getting equipment crews etc. here into new jersey and new york and connecticut as quickly as possible. as power starts coming back on, we want to make sure that people can also get to work. there are a lot of folks in jersey who work in new york, in the city, and in other places where transportation may be hobbled. one of the things that i mentioned to the governor is the possibility of us using federal assets military assets as well as taking inventory of assets from around the country that can be brought in so that we can help people
. state government is here. we are doing what we need to dofment we are coordinating with fema. i want to thank the administrator for being here, for the input he's already had in helping to make our operation betterment we'll move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there's got to be sorrow. you see that in -- and the president has seen that today, in the eyes and faces of the folks he met. that sorrow is appropriate. we suffered some loss. luckily we haven't suffered that much loss of life and we thank god for that. but we have suffered losses, and this is the worst storm i have seen in my lifetime in the state. but we cannot permit that sorrow to replace the resilience i know all new jerseyans have. so we will get up and we'll get this thing rebuilt and we'll put things back together because that's what this state is all about and always has been all about. for all of you who are here, i met a bunch of you today, who disregarded my admonition, get the hell out of here, you know, you are forgiven this time. you are forgiven this time but not for much longer. we got to
on the stump in florida today. the candidate is still staying quiet on his commitment to fema, but a campaign spokesperson released this statement, so good that we can hear from the campaign on this and not the candidate, right? "a romney/ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need, period." period? vice president joe biden was campaigning also in the sunshine state today. president obama returns to the campaign trail tomorrow. he plans to barnstorm seven battleground states over the next several days. but today we did not see politics in action. what we saw was government in action. people with authority to make decisions. chris christie is not the first person, i think, that you would think of when you come to the, you know, arena of bipartisan cooperation. he is a mitt romney supporter and a fierce opponent of many democratic issues. for whatever reason, we saw a different chris christie with president obama today. this is what cooperation looks like. when the american people need government to work, these two elected officials became leaders and
of the nurses and others of the the hospital. they were carrying newborns out. fema has been coordinating the major disaster relief the. there have been phone calls every day for the new york delegation about how they are responding. there is a great need for food and water in lower manhattan. when you go below 37 street, it is a total blackout. there are no traffic lights or phones. no way to communicate. when you are down there you can not send an e-mail or make a phone call. people are helping each other and directing traffic. the small businesses are afraid that some of them will go out of business because they operate on a fragile business line. their produce, they're derry, their stock in restaurants and small stores, it is just going bad. the food is going bad. they are losing their total revenue. we have been talking about coming in and setting up a satellite office for bridge loans and other ways to help these small businesses. fema and others are coming in. the national guard is coming in to some areas. particularly seniors in these high rises where there are elevators. so, all
is recalled with the im. talk about fema, people think about the bush legacy. and so, he doesn't have make those contrastic splits, never mind about mitt romney, that helps him because he's doing stuff and it's all out there without the effort. >> you get the unearned assist from michael brown coming out. >> we'll talk about brownie. >> you couldn't ask for that. you couldn't make that bet. >> but there's karen welcome. hi. >> welcome to the show. i want to say, it's not just the presidential thing. it's also -- there's incredibly moving -- let's not forget the human toll this storm's taken. >> absolutely. >> the images of the president consoling americans in the wake of this massive disaster are incredibly powerful images. and what you heard in the president, what you heard from the president on the stump just now was empathy, this sense that he is fighting for you, that you have a seat at the table, middle class, working class americans, that he is there for you. and that fundamentally has been a problem for mitt romney. not only do you have the president looking presidential and making
. >>> one positive, timing of sandy struck right as the new fiscal year was just beginning. that means fema's coffers are full. there's $7 billion congress appropriated for disaster fund, plus another billion left over from 2012. that should last fema through the end of the year, but with sandy expected to cost upwards of $60 billion, the odds are that congress is going to have to allocate more this winter. plus, if washington doesn't strike a deal to avoid the sequester cuts january 1st, that fiscal cliff thing, fema will take a $900 million hit. so what does all this mean? nbc's mike viqueira is back at the white house. any word from the white house on this? >> reporter: well, i mean, the short answer to your question, steve, is we don't know. and this may not surprise anybody, but it depends on who the occupant of this building is going to be come january 21st. i mean, there are a couple competing different plans out there. remember, the fiscal year, as you pointed out, always started october the 1st. congress, before leaving town very early to get on the campaign trail, extended one of
danos incalculables. la administracion federal de manejo de emergencias, fema, sugiere que las personas afectadas soliciten ayuda. mayra lopez de victoria, portavoz de fema que se comuniquen con fema telefonicamente marcando el 1800-621-3362. si usted oprime el numero 2 eso le llevara a 1 operador de hablar hispana y lo que queremos saber es cuales son sus danos. en este momento hay asistencia no solamente para recuperacion de propiedad persona si no tambien hay asistencia para reconstruir los hogares, asistencia de manejo de crisis, asistencia legal, asistencia economica para reconstruir los hogares." fema argumenta que haber declarado las zonas donde golpearia sandy como areas de emergencia les ayudo a posicionar personas y suministros antes de la llegada de sandy. en campana en florida, junto al senador marco rubio y el ex gobernador jeb bush, mitt romney tambien hizo referencia al sufrimiento en las zonas devastadas. mitt romney, nominado presidencial republicanonos unio este y queremos asegurarnos que tengan 1 recuperacion eficiente y rapida de sus perdidas financieras y en muchos
specifically mitt romney. here is romney during the g.o.p. primary debates in june of last year. >> fema is about to run out of money, and some people say it's on a case by case basis. how do you deal with something like that? >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go any further and send it back to the private sector that's even better. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral in my view. >> eliot: to discuss the federal response to the storm and the on the upcoming elections we welcome minnesota congressman and co-chair of the congressional progressive caucus representative keith ellison. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for inviting me. >> eliot: i don't understand. maybe you can shed light. mitt romney wants to privatize fema? take it back to the states and say no federal role here? how do you understand what the republican parties want to do here. >> well, do think when they can devolve
in action after superstorm sandy might flip that argument on its head. fema put 1900 people on the ground so far. it has made more than half a million meals. given out more than 600,000 liters of water and thousands of blankets and cots to anyone who needs them. will this quick reaction by the government change the mind of any voters and help president obama? joining me democratic strategist chris hahn, brad blakeman, fox news contributor, and former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. chris i have to admit, government is looking pretty good the last couple days here. i don't know. do you think it is having impact on voters out there? >> look, it is hard to argue that fema is not necessary. also hard to argue that fema performs much better under a democratic president than it did under republican president. melissa: you made a jump from that one. >> look, bottom line the republican platform this entire summer, government bad, government bad, government bad. melissa: right. >> if you look paul ryan budget, it desmates fema. we need fema to coordinate between the states. that's why w
, he will be receiving a briefing from the head of fema, craig fugate as well as his top aides, and he will remain in contact with them while he is traveling here today to wisconsin, also to nevada and colorado and that he will be doing conference call with his local officials from areas where the storm has hit. as you know, air force one is equipped so that he can stay in constant contact while he travels, carol. >> what do you think his tone will be out on the campaign trail today? >> reporter: i think we've seen a little bit of a break, obviously, from a lot of the harsh back and forth. but we're going to start to see it ramping back up. i do know from a campaign source that when president obama comes here to the airport this morning in the 11:00 eastern hour, he will be talking about the storm at the beginning of his remarks, but he's also going to be making his case for why he should be re-elected. we'll be seeing him re-entering into the political fray and certainly we'll be seeing things heating up again going into election day. when you look at wisconsin, this is a place where,
about his plans for funding fema and disaster response, something he suggested turning back to the states during a republican debate last year. attempting to clarify the candidate's position, the romney campaign released a statement yesterday reading "i believe fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disasters." mr. romney today will campaign in virginia while his running mate paul ryan meets supporters in colorado and in nevada. >>> still ahead this morning on "way too early," a tale of two cities. a lan of demarcation separates manhattan with power from the manhattan completely in the dark. we'll show you the different worlds on the same island. >>> plus, john stuart offered his take on that divided city. a l
, the president is going to stay in touch with fema. last week, big endorsement from colin powell, now the obama campaign is using the four-star general in an ad airing in ten states. oh -- >> housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us -- >> we'll get it together. also the october jobs report expected to come out tomorrow and it is going to do so on time. the government was shut down for a couple of days because of sandy, but unemployment rate should stay around 7.8%. we'll be right back. only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

agency's role in disasters like hurricane sandy. in a statement released today, he says fema plays a key role in working with states and counties to prepare for a response to natural disasters. last year, mitt romney appeared to suggest fema should be shutdown and its responsibilities left to the state tree >> tonight bge restore power to more than 90% of customers. >> there are some still in the dark tonight. more on the cleanup in the aftermath. >> we are said at the bge area in timonium were a lot of just have come in and out. crews have been working around clock to restore power but there are still people in the dark tonight. they did not let that stop them from celebrating halloween. her halloween was a little darker this year than previous years. >> none of us have power on this street. or the whole block. we do not have a single line up behind our house. >> even though the streets and the denver neighborhood did not have working street lamps because of the storm, -- the streets in her neighborhood did not have working street lamps because of the storm. >> we did earlier this year.

(laughter and applause) hay-oh! thank you, michael. stay dry up there. folks, it's one week before the election and christie is praising a democrat. what's next? a democrat praising christie? it's unnatural! it's like kissing your sister! which, by the way, will be federal law if obama is reelected. (laughter) then today christie and obama went on a tour of hurricane damage. barack obama stole mitt's date to disaster-prom! folks, none of this surprises me. none of it! (cheers and applause) none of this surprises me. hurricanes have a well-known liberal bias. first katrina tainted george bush's presidency. then isaac wiped out the first day of the republican national convention. now hurricane sandy.
of the things that i did today was talk to fema about trying to get an office and staff person in various parts of the district today, and they're working on it, and with the money that comes to downs for recovery to rebuild board walks or municipal buildings, i think there is a 25% state and local match. so we ask that that be waived. many of the towns are small and can't afford that. so there's a lot of cooperation going on. >> when you're making those calls, someone is answering your call and you're getting responses -- >> i literally called the fema while i walked into the nbc building today and they called me back in ten minutes. >> i know you were personally evacuated, i know you're back without power, good luck to you, stay in touch. >> thank you. >> for reference, this is the sixth district in new jersey, do we have that map? there we go, it's marked in red there where, of course, we have seen some of the worst devastation from this crisis. last night live we had a shocking moment in a live conversation with a very hard hit town, this is what happened, this is don zimmer. >> probably ha
in and assess their damage. we have information from fema for a contact number. we are moving along >>shepard: what is the thinking on when your people might be able to get settled again with businesses open and school back in session? >>guest: our best bet is based on the electric frist but our best bet is school on monday. people will probably not move back in their houses for a month or so. the flooding was extensive. the little film of muck and mire that coats everything will cause them to throw most of their first-floor belongings out. >>shepard: i have seen that theme reported in new orleans and it is absolutely in fun. when can people come in and aset? >>guest: we got word from the governor's office to file with fema using an 800 number to file and then you can get an okay to go in and take out debris. >>shepard: i remember a month after the storm, katrina, on the mississippi coast, speaking with the mayor of a small town down there where for a mile inland everything was rubble. he started to tell me, our problems now are mental. walking around in this, living in this, not being able t
crisis and in the middle of the crisis you embrace everyone. >>neil: but you need fema, can a president withhold it? >>guest: no, a president would not withhold it. that doesn't happen. i worked very well with president clinton and his fema director and you do want the support from the federal government but the driving force of the local governments and the state government, and it is the state government that requests the disaster and declaration that asks fema to come in and i cannot conceive of fema not coming in. >> it is never a case of a president holding a grudge. >> not with a disaster. we are better than that. >>neil: quick thoughts on the race? >>guest: i am optimistic, people realize we need a new direction and you talked about the economic climate and how hard it is to get a quaterback or keep a job and that is the overwhelming issue, how will we turn this economy around. it hasn't happened in four years and governor romney gives us the possible to create the growth in jobs we all need. >>neil: five days out from the election and officials are scrambling to deal with the da
had a debate what romney said or didn't say about fema. if you want to look it up on google, romney was asked if he'd close down fema and the quote was absolutely. now he likes fema. >> dana: wait, so does that mean he would get rid of assistance for people? that is what you are implying. >> bob: i said closed down fema. >> eric: he would rather have it handeded by the states. >> bob: absolutely he would close feena. >> greg: so nody sister assistance -- no disaster assistance ever. >> dana: obama will let any illegal getting through the border before january 1, they get welfare benefits for 20 years. that's true. you can google it. it's out there. >> bob: you don't say anything about the two-face. >> dana: i have one. roll the graphic. >> greg gutfeld dream of my five. >> dana: my puppy jasper was sick michigan husband had to take him to the vet. i couldn't sleep all night. fell asleep at 5:00 a.m. and i had a dream we had a show, five of us but bob. he was in my kitchen. party going on. it didn't know who the substitute was. it had to prepare for the show. greg looked at me and he
, questions are being raised if the federal emergency management agency or fema has enough money on hand to cover flood damage if the storm. flood damage alone is estimated in the billions of dollars and fema runs the federal flood insurance program so it picks up the tab. insurance experts say fema's flood insurance program has access to funds totaling less than $4 billion, most of that is in loans and cnn reports fema already owes $18 billion to the treasury department they say all the way back to hurricane katrina. that's a problem. >>> the pharmaceutical industry is activated an emergency website to help patients affected by sandy find nearby pharmacies that are open. the pharmacy statuses that called rx response has been activated in d.c., maryland and virginia and nine other states with widespread power outages many pharmacies have been unable to open and of course we've seen the delivery of supplies such as drug supplies being disrupted. it may not be the situation that your pharmacy hasn't even been open. they can't even get the trucks in to get your necessary medication. so this
